Seattle Liberals Rediscover the Flag

Ready to lose your appetite (if not your lunch)? Red, white and true blue: City hoists Old Glory.

Barack Obama’s presidential win held a poignant significance for liberal Seattleites: This is their America, too.

The feeling was evident in jubilant partying in the streets, in quiet moments of reflection and in blossoms of red, white and blue.

With newfound patriotism, Seattleites want to wave the flag, hang it from their homes and stick it on their cars.

“The thing that’s kind of astounding to me is I never ever would have cared to own a flag,” said Rosemary Garner, 42. “This is the first day in my life I actually feel this funny sense of pride about my country. It’s a very foreign feeling, but it’s a good one.”

Of course, when Michelle Obama was criticized for saying she was “proud of my country for the first time,” these same people screamed “racism!” and pointed fingers.

Now, apparently, the whole city of Seattle is echoing her.

Change!
